$11,000Trial Verdict for I-55 Car Crash 11x Higher What Insurance Company Offered
Recently, a salesman in his early 40s was hurt in a car crash on I-55 near Chicago. He sustained soft tissue injuries to his back and neck because of the accident. Because the auto accident was a relatively minor impact, the man delayed on getting the treatment he needed. But soon the persisting pain led him to seek out a chiropractor for his injuries. The man ended up accumulating roughly $11,000 in medical bills for chiropractic treatments. These sizable bills became burdensome and he sought out Tyler Kobylski, a Chicago personal injury lawyer with Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C., to handle his case.
The driver whose negligence caused the accident possessed auto insurance, and prior to trial the insurance company offered $1,000 to settle. Tyler advised the client to turn down the offer since it would barely cover any of the medical bills he had accumulated because of the accident. We took the claim to trial, and in the end the jury came back with a roughly $11,000 verdict – a very good result for our client. The verdict amounted to 11 times the amount that insurance company initially wanted to offer. Our client was extremely happy with the outcome of the case because it covered the medical expenses he had accrued.
